Team Kilemanjaro climb

I wanted to commend Team Kilemanjaro and their team of head guide Frank and guides Silva and Noel, summit porters, cook and assistant cook and porters for a wonderful climbing experience. All details were thought of to make our experience as pleasant as possible. Safety was paramount, and head guide Frank ensured that everyone made it safely on and off the mountain. Silva was particularly warm and empathetic and looked after all of us with genuine care and attention. Being woken with hot tea or coffee brought to the tent, followed by hot water for washing, was particularly luxurious, as were multicourse lunches served at a table.. Having one's boots removed after the summit climb was another thoughtful much appreciated detail, as were the multiple hot tea and snack breaks during the summit climb itself. I always felt safe and confident that I was in good hands during this entire experience. Thank you all for a wonderful adventure!

Amazing Experience with Team Kilimanjaro

We had a magnificent experience with our guides, Fredy Mathew and Kefas Molell, they were knowledgeable about all the plants and animals and anticipated our every need.
Fredy and Kefas were also constantly watching out for any signs of altitude sickness.

Our cook, Nickson James, worked wonders. He had a celebratory quiche waiting for us at base camp when we returned from our successful summit!
The whole team was supportive, encouraging and friendly.
It was truly wonderful!

We enjoyed our adventure from start to finish and will be sure to recommend you.

Great climb with Team Kilimanjaro

My son and I booked with TK after much research and it was well worth it. Bianca answered all my questions before the trip, however, silly they may have seemed. Nick, our guide, was competent, compassionate, and knowledgeable. All of the assistant guides and crew were wonderful, from porters offering spontaneous words of encouragement and song to the chef presenting us with decorative and delicious meals all the way up and down. All of our group of 5 made it to the summit with no altitude sickness. I am convinced this is mostly due to Nick's careful surveillance of our health, food intake and pace. The 7 day TK Lemosho route gave a great opportunity to see all sides of the mountain, experience many types of scenery, and adapt safely to the altitude. The extra acclimatization hikes on arrival at two camps helped, also. The TK route was also, thankfully, "the route less travelled," at least for 2 days. It was a memorable and wonderful trip, thanks to Team Kilimanjaro. Highly recommended!!

Sea to the Summit (19,341feet) with Team Kilimanjaro - an exhilarating experience for life!

8 of us friends from 4 countries ( 3 continents) decided to summit Mt Kilimanjaro to fundraise for underprivileged children at Isha Vidhya. We are so glad and extremely grateful that we chose Team Kilimanjaro! My elder sister had trekked with them in 2012 and she gave her feedback and we researched online and knew instantly that we were in safe hands with Team Kilimanjaro. Ally Rees Evans, our co-ordinator has been outstanding in her communication skill and planning every minute detail very well right from airport pick up taking care of our flight schedules to drop off and also guiding us to the various choices of hotels/ lodges. She patiently and promptly answered all our queries via email. We stayed at Outpost lodge which was comfortable with friendly staff, hot shower and good bed. We chose the TK Rongai route 7 days. Our chief guide Ally Swalehe and his team of Assistant Guides: Peter Malya, Dickson Festo & Leodgard Sarita, Cook: Yasin Juma, Senior Porters: Michael Joseph, Boniface Camillius, Johnson Nyari and others were excellent in the services they offered us. Our chief guide - calm and composed always had a positive outlook and he even managed to make arrangements quickly as per the situation demanded and ensured that we reach the summit safely. It was an exhilarating experience for all of us and we celebrated two birthdays at the summit which included my 50th birthday. We also had the wonderful opportunity to cook our favourite comfort food of lentil soup with tomatoes and pepper ( south Indian rasam) and raw banana chips at 4800mts ASL. All of us being vegetarians we could enjoy a very tasty spread of food every single day. Water supply was safe and unlimited. The porters were really very helpful to each one of us and on summit day they were truly our guardian angels! We learnt some words in Swahili ( pole pole, hakuna matata, Jumbo and we sang/ danced to the Kilimanjaro song which Asst guide Peter sang daily for us supported by the others). We had a short acclimatisation hike up the ridge at 4800mts and the TK Rongai route had variety of terrain and amazing landscape. Overall the entire experience is so strongly etched in our minds and it was indeed a trip of a lifetime with fond memories to bring back! Team Kilimanjaro and their support staff made it extremely memorable for all of us. We are grateful to them for making it safely to the summit and back with fond memories. I strongly recommend Team Kilimanjaro for anyone who is keen to explore Mt Kilimanjaro. They are skilled, safe, fun, experienced and they know this mountain much better than one's own backyard!
